Well, you need to get addicted to the drug to get kicked out, if you are taking around 3 drugs everyday for a week, you are probably going to end up as an addict…Also BE AWARE if you get addicted you CANNOT USE THE GYM!!!
Royal_Marine , March 19, 2007
That’s hard to say really. I was kicked out after less than a week of Xanax. I took about 6 or 7 of them before getting kicked.

Ex is a pretty addictive drug, but I’m not sure how long it would take to get kicked.

jcgamo88 , March 22, 2007
Hi what is meant by after effects?
Capoo , March 24, 2007
after effects in tc is how long u still cant take other drugs, i tink 🙂
Kuma-Mama-Yako , March 27, 2007
If u take like 1 drug a week will u end up addicted?
jerri59 , April 29, 2007
Jerri: Different drugs have different addiction rates so it depends on the drug. Xanax is HIGHLY addictive vs Vicodin not nearly as addictive.
Dave , May 02, 2007
What is more effective, going to Switzerland once a week or once a month?
schoolgirl , May 12, 2007
Well you can train in the gym if you do get addicted you just have to be on a drug to do it. I prefer Canabis. And i would say just for chunkystuff to tale 2.5 mill to switzerland with you and get rid asap. jerri59, it depends on the drug. Mizzu 17 you will no if you go to train and run into the glass door.
Matt , May 13, 2007
so… where do i get these drugs

TCB: Overseas, or off other players. Check the item list for info. You have to be level 15 to travel

emokid11 , May 25, 2007
Xanax drug – after effects 460 minutes

After effects are quite a bit more than noted above. So along with cannabis there are a few changes to the drugs compared to what is listed here.

I believe Ecstasy after effects are longer as well but won’t be able to test that for quite a while 🙂

Fluffybunnykins , June 18, 2007
i used a cannabis and it only gave me 1 extra nerve explain plz cuz i was annoyed

TCB: Changed it to ‘adds 1-2 nerve’. We’ll change it as more info comes to light (submitted by you guys)

clammygallaxy , June 24, 2007
the OD for cannbis is SO wrong! I ODed on it and got not only hospital time, my whole E and nerve bars got emptied too!
Foreveryoung , July 01, 2007
I have got a few questiong. 1) which works better for training? ecstasy or xanax? – keep in mind the cost.

2) which is more addicting, how much would it take to become addicted.

And what would you recommend to use when training? and how many times a week? month?

Jason , July 02, 2007
Answer 1) for sure XANAX
Answer 2) again its xanax. take 2 xanax per day in 2-3 days and maybe u will addicted to drugs.
Answer 3) use xanax coz it will add 250 energy and use it everyday for about 2-3 xanaxs per day (if u got the money) and some xtacy. It depends on how many time u go to the gym.
snif , July 03, 2007
When taking PCP does anybody body know how much speed or dexterity is actually gained?
pittguy , July 19, 2007
Hey i was wondering if weed makes your organized crimes increase it gives u more nerve and rumored to help out crimes is that just one man crims or is that oc’s as well?

TCB: We don’t know…

BryanGandlton , August 02, 2007
i take 1 extasy a day, will i end up addicted? because its like 50k each and i dont want to be addicted
stonemason69 , August 06, 2007
Enough of anything will get you addicted over time. Addictions are not calculated separately. When you take a drug, it’s like a certain amount of “addiction points” are added to a counter somewhere, and when you’re not high, those counters slowly fade off. In this terminology, then A addiction points are added for Cannabis, B addiction points added for ecstasy, etc.

Nobody knows for sure, but this is what it seems like to me.

With this in mind, I think that if you have X addiction points, you run like a 1% chance of getting kicked from your class each hour or something, and if your addiction points get past a certain amount, you reach the gym lockout.
